Jay Youngers famous footballer relative as Love Island bombshell sparks chaos

Gemma Owen is no longer the only Islander in the villa this year to have ties to a famous footballer.

This week Jay Younger entered the Love Island villa alongside Remi Lambert as one of the latest bombshells.

And like Gemma, the new Islander has a famous footballer family member, revealing that his grandad is Scottish legend Tommy Younger.

The investment analyst has already ruffled some feathers during his time in the villa and made it clear that he’s not afraid to step on anyone's toes.

He’s confident of his chances with the ladies, saying: "I think I genuinely have what most females want.

"I’ve got a good job, I think I am a good-looking lad and I have a lot of fun so I feel like I could add a lot of value to their lives if they add a lot of value to mine."

Despite his short time in the villa, Jay has already caused some dramatic moments.

As it looks as if he’s set to shake things up even more in tonight’s episode, here’s everything you need to know about Jay Younger’s famous grandad and the chaos he’s already caused in the villa.

Who is Jay Younger’s grandad?

Jay Younger’s grandad is former Liverpool player Tommy Younger.

Speaking about his famous grandad to The Mirror, Jay said: "My grandad played for Liverpool and he was captain of Scotland back in the 1950s.

"He was in the hall of fame for Liverpool and he was in the hall of fame for Hibernian."

Tommy Younger is a Scottish football star who played as a goalkeeper.

He made his debut for Liverpool in 1956 and played for the club for three years. Throughout his football career, he also played for Hibernian, Falkirk, Leeds United and Stoke City.

In 1958 Tommy was also the captain of Scotland’s World Cup squad.

Jay’s entry into the villa sparked speculation that he might reveal who Gemma Owen’s dad is to the other Islanders.

So far, Gemma has kept the identity of her football legend dad Michael Owen under wraps, but fans wondered whether Jay would finally spill the beans.

But so far he’s kept silent about her dad and hasn’t revealed that they both have common ground when it comes to famous footballing family members.

Jay Younger causes chaos in the villa

Although he hasn’t revealed Gemma’s secret, Jay has worked quickly to shake things up since entering the villa on Tuesday.

From the get-go he revealed he wasn’t afraid to step on toes, saying: “I’m definitely not afraid of breaking up a couple.”

Jay could pose a threat to the other men on the show and believes that even Italian hunk Davide Sanclimenti needs to watch out.

Jay said that while “Davide might be the Italian snack”, he was the “main course”.

His entry into the villa has sparked tension with the other men too.

He clashed with Gemma Owen’s ex Jacques after telling him he looked “a bit small for a rugby player.”

Jacques was unhappy with the remark and responded by saying he could “flatten” Jay.

And it looks like Jay could be set to cause even more chaos, having already caught the eyes of Tasha and Ekin-Su.

A sneak peek at tonight's episode showed Ekin-Su, who is currently coupled up with Davide, sneaking onto the rooftop terrace for what appears to be a kiss with Jay.

The clip has left fans on the edge of their seat waiting to see whether Jay will couple up with Ekin-Su, potentially leaving the villa's “Italian Stallion” single.
